    Did SeaWorld Rig ‘Blackfish’ Poll?

    SAN DIEGO, CA - FEBRUARY 14:  In this handout photo provided by SeaWorld San Diego, mom and baby killer whale swim together at SeaWorld San Diego's Shamu Stadium February 14, 2013 in San Diego, California.  Kasatka, a killer whale who is approximately 37 years old, gave birth to the calf this morning at 6:33 a.m. under the watchful eyes of SeaWorld's zoological team. The calf is estimated to weigh between 300 and 350 pounds and measure 6 to 7 feet. The gender of the calf is not yet known. As with any killer whale birth, the mother and calf will be observed round the clock for the first few days.  (Photo by Mike Aguilera/SeaWorld San Diego via Getty Images)


    A devastating documentary about the treatment of whales at SeaWorld has brought heat to the popular park, and now the park is being accused of rigging an online poll in its favor. The Orlando Business Journal posed the question, "Has CNN's 'Blackfish' documentary changed your perception of SeaWorld?" and within three days, 99 percent of the responses were in SeaWorld's favor. An IP Address owned by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment accounted for more than half the votes, but in response to the allegations, the company says their employees were responsible for the votes.
